And so we head to Ladbrokes Park for the last hurrah of the Melbourne spring carnival for 2019.
The Sandown Guineas is one of the main events, and the Chris Waller-trained Kavalmo looks hard to beat.
The lightly raced colt put in a solid effort for fifth in the Carbine Club Stakes and will be much better suited on a dry track.
The Zipping Classic for the weight-for-agers, the Sandown Cup for the stayers, the Sandown Stakes for the milers and the Summoned Stakes for the mares are among the support races.
Our form coverage kicks off on Friday with full form guides for the Moonee Valley and Canterbury night meetings plus the day meeting at bet365 Park Kyneton plus fields, colours and selections for a swag more meetings.
The metro racing this Saturday is at Ladbrokes Park in Melbourne, Newcastle in NSW for the $1 million Hunter, Morphettville in Adelaide, the Sunshine Coast in Queensland and Ascot in Perth. But it doesn't stop there, because there's nighttime action at Cranbourne and we've got it covered.
Winning Post carries full-colour liftout guides for all those meetings plus Dunkeld (Vic/SA/Tas edition), Kembla Grange (NSW edition) and Gold Coast (Queensland edition), as well as fields, tips, ratings and/or colours for other TAB Saturday cards.
On Sunday we've got liftout formguides for four more TAB meetings including Donald Cup day plus fields, ratings, tips and colours for a stack more Sunday and Monday programs.
Don't forget Winning Post now carries trackwork reports for all four Melbourne training tracks, all three in Sydney, Morphettville in Adelaide and a general Brisbane report.
Away from the form, we've got news columns from Queensland, NSW, six Victorian districts, SA and Tasmania.
Our readers have their say on page 4, while further back in the book Shane Templeton reminisces, Paul Richards presents his unique take on the sport, Matt Stewart tackles the big issues and Number Cruncher delivers the stats that matter.
Winning Post costs $5.50 and is available Thursday afternoon in selected Ballarat newsagents, the crack of dawn Friday elsewhere.
